Muesli-eating, sandal-wearing, fringe-growing hippy Boris Johnson will rejoin 'Mayors for Peace' just months after pulling out of the group.
The original decision was one of those red slaying, Gilligan appeasing, Barnbrook pleasing, gesture policies that so annoyed us at the beginning of Boris's term
But with no positive press coverage from the move, and with the CND condemning him as 'A Mayor for War,' Boris perhaps decided that he had gone a bit too far.
Writing in response to a question from Joanne McCartney, Boris declares:
"I have reviewed my initial decision and decided that London will remain a member of Mayors of Peace."Membership of Mayors for Peace does not involve any significant use of GLA resources. I agree with the principles of Mayors for Peace, which deplore acts of violence and that cities should be spared the scourge of war. In this context, I consider my continuing involvement with the network to be efficient, reasonable and a good thing for Londoners."
